Reviews - What do customers think about Christmas in My Heart, Vol. 7?
Continued Satisfaction with this Series Mar 6, 2008
Through the years I have collected all of the Christmas in My Heart Volumes (except I have not been able to locate Volume 4--keeping my eyes open). This Volume as with the others is simply delightful. If you enjoy traditional and current inspiring, family oriented, uplifting wholesome stories you cannot go wrong with any of the Christmas in My Heart Books. They are a nice break from the hectic pace of today's world. Joe Wheeler does an excellent job of gathering and selecting the stories and the stories he writes himself are wonderful also. If you are an avid reader, you will enjoy these books but if you only have small bits of time for reading, it is nice they have the short story format. Enjoy!!
Christmas in My Heart Jan 10, 2007
I bought this book as a gift for a friend, but took a peek inside before I mailed it. It's wonderful! Heartwarming, touching, lovely stories that point your heart toward the true meaning of the season...I loved it.
Great as a gift or for your own family Feb 20, 2000
My daughter has been going to sleep to the sound of these stories (we have all the volumes) for several years now. She listens to them year round, not just at Christmastime.
One of the reasons they last so long, is that she is usually asleep before the end of the story!
A Great Read for Christmas Dec 4, 1999
I have read several of the "Christmas In My Heart" Collections and find each worthwhile. While the stories are sentimental, they do remind the reader of the true meaning of Christmas. The stories vary in diversity, which is a great asset to this collection. Some are quite "old-fashioned" (19th century/early 20th century stories), while others are more recent. Some can be shared with small children, while others would greatly appeal to adults ("Meditation in a Minor Key" is my personal favorite). Reading this collection (or any of the other volumes)is a great way to unwind after a day spend shopping. The colleciton is a reminder of what our true focus should be on Christmas.
A worthwhile Read Dec 4, 1999
I have read a few of the "Christmas In My Heart" Books, and I find each one worthwhile. Although the stories are very sentimental, Christmas, more than any other time of year, is a sentimental season. Probably the greatest asset of this collection (and the other volumes)is the diversity of the stories. The stories range from ones that can be shared with small children ("Small Things") to ones adults would enjoy ("Pandora's Books" in this volume and "Meditation in a Minor Key" in volume 1). While most of the stories are quite old (19th century/early 20th), there are also more recent ones ("Matthew, Mark, Luke,and John" - post Korean War). Each story is deeply moving and refocuses the reader's attention from the hassle of shopping and writing cards to the true meaning of Christmas. The stories are inspirational and heart warming.
